Once behind the wheel, LAPD Officer Edgar Verduzco struck two vehicles from behind causing one to burst into flames killing a teen and his parents. A 31-year-old woman in the second vehicle was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The Instagram story Verduzco shared on Instagram condemning drunk driving was around 7 p.m. Tuesday evening and the crash occurred around 10:15 pm the same night. Verduzco was driving his 2016 Chevy Camaro when he rear-ended the other vehicles at a high rate of speed according to the California Highway Patrol.

The first image uploaded to Verduzco's Instagram was of his new car, showing he didn't have the car more than a few months before killing three people with it. His bail has been set at $100,000 dollars according to the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles. Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck said, “I cannot tell you how angry and disappointed I am that a Los Angeles police officer would disregard the law and cause an accident with such awful, awful consequences."
